WATCH: Plane and Runway Lights Explained!


Captain Amy from Aviation Airways knows tonnes about air travel and in this brand new animated series she’s been taking us all over the place and teaching us cool things about aviation.

In this episode Captain Amy is teaching us about the different types of lights that are used with air travel.

She shows us the different lights that are on the plane. Navigation lights help pilots work out which way another plane is travelling. Planes also have strobe lights which are strong lights that flash in bursts. These help planes see each other in dark conditions.

We also check out what the different coloured runway lights mean!
